This is a video you'll want to have if you want to learn to make the best videos can at a value price. Too often computer training classes spend so much time with useless jargon and computer basics before you learn anything about the subject. You can begin immediately using the knowledge you obtain to produce professional looking videos of your vacation, school play, or even a multimedia business presentation.
The DVD presents almost every thing you want to know about Microsoft's video editing system, Movie Maker 2.1, a new tool which is downloadable or included for free with most computer systems. You'll get the key training segments of our seminar on this informative DVD. If you don't have a lot of time to pour through manuals or miss a day at the office to learn - this is the DVD for you.
We've skipped all the filler material and jumped right in to the basics of capturing your own video and producing exciting results using Microsoft Windows Movie Maker. Now you can avoid the hassles of thumbing through cumbersome books and manuals, instructors looking over your shoulder, or forgetting how to do something after class is over. You learn at your own pace.
Other video editing packages tend to be quite expensive and contain unneeded bells and whistles for the average user. Microsoft Windows Movie Maker has powerful video creation and editing tools available FREE to most Windows users and can be found on most recent Windows computers or you can download. For a fraction of the cost of trainers and bulky software systems, this DVD will show you how you can quickly tap into the unused power of your computer to produce your own multimedia video with sound, special effects, and transitions. We've even included bonus material on using your minidv or digital8 camcorder to capture video clips.  

We'll show you how to divide your movie clips and join them together to produce interesting sequences with powerful transitions and special effects. Learn how to burn the videos you have created to a DVD. All this at a fraction of the cost of many high level editing packages!
